Gentofte Sports Park

Large indoor courts in a residential neighborhood

Gentofte Sportpark is a visible and significant landmark for gatherings in Gentofte Municipality. The sports hall and the rebuilt stadium is an outdoor space, which can eventually become an even more attractive ‘heart’ throughout Gentofte Park.

The existing stadium was situated in a huge bowl-shaped hole. The new sports hall is ‘buried’ in the landscape and creates a new public plateau connecting the various footpaths in the area and provides a transition between the road and the lower main entrance. The new hall building consists of two large separate halls, each contains three basketball courts.

The biggest sports hall contains a fixed grandstand with seating for 1500 spectators for big matches and is prepared for further establishment of telescopic grandstands and mobile platforms allowing for national and international matches in an intimate and arena-like atmosphere.

The two sports halls are covered with wavy vertical bands of black anodized folded aluminum plates. The bonds are separated by black anodized T-profiles, creating a playful, yet elegant façade composition. The dark façade is slightly reflective and therefore takes the color of sky, the surrounding green landscape and the many trees.
